Earlier today saw Marvel Studios confirm an adaptation of the "Civil War" storyline for Captain America 3.

As comic fans know, the story had to do with supeheroes registering their secret identies with the government.

And as comic and movie fans also know, the Marvel cinematic universe doesn't really have any costumed secret super heroes.

Slash Film caught up with Kevin Feige following today's big announcement of the new Marvel movies, with Feige commenting on the difference.

It was also noted that Feige dodged questions regarding Spider-Man (as Spidey film rights are owned by Sony Studios, but the character was integral to the comic storyline).

I don’t want to give too much away, but needless to say, the generalities of the act are the same. Something happens, perhaps it’s cumulative for things that have happened though all of the movies leading up to this point. It has made the governments of the world say “we need to have some oversight of these guys. They need to report to somebody. So it becomes more… it falls under that umbrella, rather than “you have to take off your mask.” It’s not about the secret identity thing, as much as it is about, overall, who reports to who, and who can agree to oversight committee. Because as of now, in Avengers 2, there is no more security council, there is no SHIELD, obviously. Stark is paying for it, Captain America is running it, and things occur that will make governments begin to question.
